Writing prompts that always work

I recently wrote a guest post for YourStoryCoach.com that gathers together a few of my favorite writing prompts, which coincidentally all contain the word “always.”  I hope you’ll take them for a test drive and share your thoughts and/or results.

For extra credit, here’s another great writing prompt:

  • Write about the person who has always been there for you, through ups and downs, year in and year out.  If it makes it easier, begin with the words “This is an ode to ________, who has always been there fore me.” and see where it goes.

Be sure to free-write the first draft so you get the benefit of the many associations that tumble out, which often lead to other serendipitous stories.

      Thanks Luanne, appreciate your comment. Would love if you would add one to the pile or tell me what you wrote about in response to any one of the prompts.
